Richmond kids age three to nine are having their artwork exhibited at a local gallery to raise money for Richmond Hospital Foundation’s mental health campaign.
Dozens of acrylic paintings are hanging on the wall at Lipoint Place, a gallery on No. 3 Road near Aberdeen Canada Line station.
One picture features different children’s’ faces – with one face missing a nose, while another face looks red.
“Participants are all talented students from a local art studio and the youngest one is only three years old while the oldest is nine,” said Shinna Zhang, the event organizer.
“They put their whole heart, soul and love into this project and they all enjoyed the process of creating something from scratch by letting their imagination run wild. They are little, but their ideas and creativity are powerful enough to change the world.”
People heading to the exhibition are being encouraged to make a purchase, with some of the funds being donated to the hospital foundation for the renovation of an in-patient acute mental health unit, which is scheduled to open in late 2021.
The exhibition will last until the end of November.
